Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

  • 42,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Chevrolet Corvette. The contact started the ignition and heard a loud noise. All of the warning lights illuminated on the instrument panel and remained so until the engine was turned off. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer, but was not repaired. In rainy weather conditions, water leaked from the front driver and passenger side windows. Also, the trunk sustained water leakage and caused a strong odor and mildew. On a separate occasion, the vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for the water leakage failures; however, the failures still persist. The vehicle has not been repaired. The VIN was unknown. The current and failure mileages were 42,000.
